Sustainable Neighborhoods: Parks, Gathering Spaces and Public Places

The word is out! People want to live in places where they can re-create, find beauty, enjoy family activities, improve land use, and increase neighborhood quality of life. Connecting housing, jobs, amenities, schools, and parks and open space is a key part of revitalized communities. Join this webcast to learn more about how neighborhood leaders are identifying natural assets and creating new community spaces. National experts and local practitioners will discuss strategies that involve citizens, local leaders, and local governments in successful models across the country. This will be an interactive session with an opportunity for participant questions and comments.
